Last season's hood has been removed for his two handicaps this season and he's improved, comfortably making all over C&D and beaten a head at Exeter (also 2m on good to soft); that's six races over hurdles in total, so he's seen far more action than most of these, and he needs further improvement.

Two runs for current yard, taking a big step back in the right direction on latest; it's a concern that his final piece of Irish form (2m1f) is so far in advance of anything else he's done over hurdles but he's brother to a 3m winner, so this new, longer trip under rules holds possibilities.
